Romney Leads by Wide Margin in Florida

by Katrina Trinko

Results from Rasmussen poll of likely GOP primary voters in Florida: Mitt Romney (41 percent), Newt Gingrich (19 percent), Rick Santorum (15 percent), Ron Paul (9 percent), Jon Huntsman (5 percent), and Rick Perry (2 percent). A couple of factors to watch in the Sunshine state: Paul doesn’t intend to campaign aggressively there, and it’s going to be tougher for Super PACs and candidates to pull up their numbers  via aggressive advertising, due to how expensive it is to run ads throughout Florida.
